Creator-Or-Chance? What brought our Universe and Life into existence? Are we meant to be, or are we here by accident?
Exploring our knowledge of all life-and-matter, together with our modern affluent lifestyles, have impacted Christianity..
Thanksgiving must be grounded om a genuine feeling of Gratitude for blessings we have received.
Here are some more thoughts on Gratitude:
"Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." Melody Beattie
"When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around." Willie Nelson
"Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others." Marcus Tullius Cicero
"If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is 'Thank you', it will be enough." Meister Eckhart
Resentment is an especially destructive and debilitating emotion. It is fueled by so many other equally negative emotions such as Jealousy, Suspicion, Anger. Bitterness, Dislike, and Hatred.
Unless these are controlled they will destroy you psychologically and ruin any chance you have of becoming the person you are potentially able to become.
Our Lord Jesus taught us that there is only one solution and that is FORGIVENESS!
Listen to the wisdom of St Augustine:
"Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die."
Thanksgiving is a time of togetherness and gratitude.
Isn't it a wonderful practice that we set days aside to express appreciation, love, and gratitude for our parents, namely Mothers Day and Fathers Day?

Help pass on informative, entertaining, and faith-enhancing content.
